Dear WM, your cheese has slid off your cracker.

1. you specify an "and" condition,
in Logic "set of sets" AND "devil" => "terrify", IF and only IF "believer"

2. this is obviously false as the "devil" can "terrify" some
"believers" without any "set of sets"

3. take the inverse, if not set of sets or not the devil, then not
terrify, if not believer. which is true.

therefore your post is false.
